Review : Charm and Strange by Stephanie Kuehn

Andrew Winston Winters is at war with himself. He’s part Win, the lonely teenager exiled to a remote Vermont boarding school in the wake of a family tragedy. The guy who shuts all his classmates out, no matter the cost.He’s part Drew, the angry young boy with violent impulses that control him. The boy who spent a fateful, long-ago summer with his brother and teenage cousins, only to endure a secret so monstrous it led three children to do the unthinkable. Over the course of one night, while stuck at a party deep in the New England woods, Andrew battles both the pain of his past and the isolation of his present. Before the sun rises, he’ll either surrender his sanity to the wild darkness inside his mind or make peace with the most elemental of truths—that choosing to live can mean so much more than not dying. 

Charm and strange was such a fascinating book. The story itself got me hooked from the start, i had no idea what the hell was going on and where exactly it was going to end. I love how much i doubt my theories all the way, not to sure if i was reading something supernatural or not. I don’t want to say more, just read it. The characters were interesting too, Win has a great voice, both as a kid and as a teenagers. The writing style was perfect, just incredible. I need to check out more of her work.

Overall, i don’t want to say too much about this book. It’s better to go in not knowing.

Charm and strange : 4.5/5
